Friday Fictioneers is a weekly group hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction. Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group. It’s a great way to get involved in writing.
The need to know
The door at the end of the corridor opened into a small room. The walls were lined with shelves full of books. She had never seen so many.
She pulled one out. A diary, hand-written with photographs. It opened at a page entitled ‘The sun sets on air travel’. She remembered her grandfather telling her about various forms of transport. There was nothing now. All lost without trace.
Hearing voices, she pushed the diary into her bag. She had to have it. It might explain what happened, help her understand.
Outside the building, the sun sank slowly below the horizon.
